PREORDER - FOR JUNE 2021 DELIVERY
Born in Indulkana, a remote Aboriginal community in the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) Lands in north-west South Australia. Her childhood was pre-internet and the the 80s was pretty inspirational, MTV/Rage and western pop culture created a world of stories and comic book-like canvases that only gets better by age.
Her work makes you want to dance inside your mind – as girls just want to have fun! She celebrates strong woman and merges fancy pop with her daily life and personal experiences. Community is a massive part of her visual language – whimsical yet strong in message – have a good time but look after your sisters.You rock Kaylene Whiskey – I dedicate this song for you
